Host families are a crucial, much-appreciated part of RedWolves baseball. Each summer, local families open their homes to our players and their generosity has helped us make the RedWolves a part of the Florence community for 19 years. Being a host family is a great opportunity for your family to connect with a college player while being part of the larger RedWolves family.
Host families provide room and board for a college player from the end of May through mid-August each year. All RedWolves players are student-athletes and are not paid to play in the Coastal Plain League. They come to Florence to further develop their skills and to catch the eyes of professional league scouts.
Many former RedWolves can be found on the rosters of major and minor league teams-- players like Michael Kohn, David Sappelt, Mike Morrison, Jake Smith, Tyler Colvin, and David Lough all stayed with host families while with the Florence RedWolves and look at them now! While there is no guarantee that your player will make it to the pros, we can guarantee that the RedWolves organization will do everything we can to help these young men develop into better players on the field and better people off it. We work diligently to insure that the player you host will be a great fit in your home and family.
The Florence RedWolves have become an elite collegiate summer league baseball team in the country. Stadium Journey has ranked the RedWolves in the top three nationally in stadium atmosphere and fan experience.
Community partners continue to see the benefits of marketing their business with the RedWolves. We can help add brand awareness, brand exclusivity, implement booming promotions, create community ties, and collaborate business-to-business correspondence.
Businesses that have teamed up with the RedWolves have seen a great return on their venture with the RedWolves marketing strategies. Based on your business’s goals, the RedWolves will help develop a plan that fits your needs and focuses on extended goals.
We’re not just partners. We’re family.
